Happy National Farriers Week!

We would like to thank our very own farrier, Patrick Reilly, for his many years of hard work and continued support across numerous functions at New Bolton Center.

Hoof care plays a critical role in overall health and well-being, so we are glad to have Patrick on our team to ensure the millions of horses that arrive at New Bolton Center leave on the right foot.

A tree was planted at New Bolton Center in memory of Penn Vet’s ninth dean, Robert R. Marshak, DVM, DACVIM, who passed away at 97 in October 2020.

With a career that spanned decades, Dr. Marshak was a dedicated and transformative leader. He redefined the veterinary profession, and he is unquestionably, the ‘Father of Veterinary Clinical Specialties,’.

Like Dr. Marshak’s legacy, this tree will live on for generations of Penn Vet students, faculty, and staff to appreciate and cherish.

Minimizing Misery: Topical Anesthetic Keeps Horses More Comfortable During Intramuscular Injections - Horse Racing News | Paulick Report

New Bolton Center researchers find that topical anesthetics can reduce a horse’s behavioral reaction to injections.

After just one uncomfortable experience with a needle, horses can begin to develop an injection aversion. These “needle shy” horses sometimes show dangerous behaviors in their effort to avoid routine vaccination or blood work.

“If we can reduce the discomfort of injections, we may be able to avoid development of aversions to injections and other health care procedures, thereby improving welfare both at the time of vaccinations and lifelong,” explain Drs. Catherine Torcivia and Sue McDonnell.

#PennVet

A recent survey reported that 92 percent of British veterinarians have dealt with horses that are fearful of injections; nearly half say they encountered needle-shy horses multiple times a week. Horses can become dangerous to vets and handlers as they try to avoid a needle stick. Injections and bloo...

Dogs are sniffing out disease in animals vital to traditions of the Blackfeet tribe

We’re biased…but we love a good story on how dogs can protect wildlife, the environment, and people!

Promising canine scent training coming out of the Blackfeet Indian Reservation in NW Montana to detect the prevalence of Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) in the wild. The program, sponsored by non-profit Indigenous Vision in partnership with Working Dogs for Conservation, seeks to identify CWD-negative landscapes to protect tribal human health.

Our own Wildlife Futures Program canines – in partnership with our Working Dog Center – continue their own CWD scent recognition training. More to come on that front!!

It’s that time of year again.

Many equestrians and farm owners dread the booming 4th of July celebrations that spook their animals. Check out the graphic below from the American Association of Equine Practitioners to find out what you can do to help your horse feel safe this holiday weekend.

Remember: use caution on the journey home from celebrations. The shock of fireworks can cause wildlife to flee, ending up in unexpected areas or roadways.

Wishing you and your horse a happy, safe 4th of July! 🇺🇸

#PennVet

With the Fourth of July just around the corner, now is a good time to make preparations to keep your horses, farm animals and pets safe during any fireworks that will be happening in your area.

The graphic below lists some tips to get you started. If you horses are staying out overnight, be sure to check your fencing ahead of time and neutralize any hazards like rocks, branches or holes that could lead to injury if the animals start bolting. If you are really worried about your horse's safety, consult your veterinarian about calming agents and sedatives.

No matter what your Independence Day plans are, above all please remember to practice safety and be considerate of the people and the animals living around you so EVERYONE may have an enjoyable celebration.

Happy 4th! 🇺🇸

What are you up to this summer?

Abigail “Abby” Seeley, V’24, is spending it in West Africa at the Gambia Goat Dairy, an ambitious project started in 2016 by Penn Vet alumni Drs. Brianna Parsons and Corey Spies while in veterinary school.

The Gambia Goat Dairy (GGD) is a community-led teaching and research farm that looks to improve nutrition, reduce poverty, steward the environment, and create community well-being.

Abby began working with GGD in 2021 (virtually) during her first year of veterinary school. Now, she has embarked on a two-month, in-country internship to establish standard operating procedures and veterinary best practices for the growing goat dairy.

Happy PA Native Species Day!

Today is the first ever #PANativeSpeciesDay created to celebrate and protect our native plants, trees, insects, and animals. In ecosystems like ours, native species of plants, animals, and insects have specialized roles to keep the habitat in balance.

Here in Pennsylvania, the survival of our habitats is under increasing pressure from invasive, nonnative species. This negatively impacts the health of our wildlife, putting many species at risk of decline.

Take action to protect our native habitats!

Summer has just begun, and it’s a hot one. Most dairy cows start to experience mild heat stress at a heat index of about 68 degrees. Heat stress can cause a loss in appetite, leading to a drop in milk production of up to 10 pounds of milk per day.

The Senate of Pennsylvania and the Pa State Working Animal Foundation hosted Working Animal Appreciation Day at Harrisburg’s Capitol Complex to recognize the contributions of working animals across the Commonwealth. These K9s, still in training, and their Wildlife Futures handlers spent the day interacting and informing legislators about their soon-to-be role in the field detecting Chronic Wasting Disease, a fatal disease to deer.

I am looking for studies on equine hoof boots - like in these images. Does anyone know about any research done? Where? By whom?
This is truly an amazing place the staff the doctors everyone there is amazing. We can’t thank you all enough for the wonderful care our horse Willie received. From the bottom of our hearts thank you. This facility gave my horse the only chance he had in life and we will Forever be grateful to each of you. If you ever need too notch care this is the place to go. Tina, Joe and Willie.
Very pleased with the care and thorough diagnosis my horse received. The doctors and staff could not have been more attentive or more responsive. I wish I had sent him there sooner. PA proud.
Wanted to share an update with the staff at New Bolton center. This filly was admitted for 10 days at 5 weeks old with Botulism. Dr. Joy Tomlinson cared for her during that admission. She recently won her first race. Also many thanks to Dr. Levine and his surgical team for treating her as well. I know Dr. Tomlinson has moved away, hoping if someone keeps in touch with her, they can share this with her and give her another thank you for helping save this filly.
Hello. Was wondering what is happening with Boone? His blog is no longer available and no updates. I was reading a bunch of people were inquiring about him since so many watched as My Special Girl delivered Boone. Can you give us an update with current pics of him please. Would love to see him now.
Any apartments available to rent near new bolton for one semester.
Today marks the 10 year anniversary of my horse Leroy's surgery at NBC to combat Guttural Pouch Mycosis. Despite complications (tracheotomy and subsequent infection of that site), Leroy pulled through and is now a perfectly healthy 22 year old gelding living the life on the California coast. Thank you to Dr. Orsini and the techs, students, and staff at New Bolton Center for saving his life!
One year ago today my girl, Allie Kat, was diagnosed with a debilitating disease. It was a serious punch in my gut but I was determined that if she was going to fight it, I was going to do anything in my power to help her. She fought like a girl 💪 and after many months of rehab and special care, she came back. Qualifying for the Select World and the Open World, completing her superior in Amatuer HUS and only 1 point away from her Open Superior with Rhonda, and just for fun...got her ROM in Performance Mares. In 2 weeks, we will be making the trek to Oklahoma to compete at the AQHA World Show. I will never be able to give enough thanks to Rhonda Replogle, Rebecca Luther, my Mom (not on FB) Dr Moira Nusbaum of PenMar Equine, Dr Amy Johnson and Dr Michelle Linton of New Bolton Center for their time, expertise and most of all, putting up with me, an obsessed, controlling horse-mom. I appreciate even more, every ride I get on Allie and we would not be at this point without every one of them.
*screaming with excitement*
Hi – I have a 2005 16.1 hh Hanoverian x TB gelding to donate. Briefly, “Jos” was stolen from his stall at the boarding barn in October 2014. The thief had tied him up and left him alone for the night; he broke the rope and returned home; my vet examined him and found he had rope burns and was lame (right stifle). With guidance from my vet, we did surgery (the lateral meniscus on his right stifle was displaced when he broke the rope to get free, making the joint unstable) and rehab, but to no avail. Yes, the thief was caught and yes, he was prosecuted and found guilty; and yes, I took him to court and recovered what I could, but my horse couldn’t be made whole at that point. So Jos has healed all that he can and he is now just being a horse out in the pasture. He takes good care of himself, he runs with his pasture mates, and he is sound on his own.  If we had our own place, we would just keep him and let him live out his life as a companion horse, but this isn’t possible for us. He would like a real job and I’m sure he would be a lovely teacher to vet students learning how to work with equines. We live in Virginia and I have listed Jos as a donation prospect with Virginia Tech. But my trainer suggested I also contact UPenn New Bolton (a former student donated a horse to the center) and also Cornell. Would you please let me know who I could contact to list Jos as a donation prospect for teaching or research at the New Bolton Center. Thanks very much for your help! Regards, Marianne Bobskill
We are so fortunate to have you in our community. You have helped so many of us!!! Please come to our EQUINE FLING at the Old Stone Cicer Barn May 17, Thursday after work for an awesome evening of premium local cider, drinks light fare, music, and shopping with our local horsemen !
My eternal gratitude goes to Drs. Michelle Linton and her team for safely bringing Scarlett Zydeco into the world April 21 and to Dr. Nicole Scherrer and her team for their superb care for mama Dancer’s eye pre-foaling and surgery post-foaling. Scarlett had a rough start but with excellent care she is feisty and doing great! We will never forget the wonderful care they received!
